    Sturdy and convenient

    I've personally owned one of these for several years and the BSA troop I was in a few years ago had several and all of them held up well. I've seen recent reviews complaining about the spigot being flimsy but I don't think it is. I bought two new ones anyway (assuming I could interchange spigots if needed). The new spigot has a stop that prevents you from turning the handle more than a half-turn which is fine. Just don't force it and the handle should work for a long time. The vent tabs are the same and will still have a tendency to break after a few years. Be careful and they'll last long (but not forever).

    Great water carriers!

    The only knock on these are the vents eventually break so I buy a couple spares in advance. Would be 5 star if the vent connector was just a tad thicker (but that's a minor thing). Besides that, they're great & way better than a Jerry can.


    For many of you I see many questions that need answering and I will make this as informative as I can and this review may cover all the necessary questions. 1. This is a BPA free container, and by law any item that comes in contact with food and water for long periods is supposed to be so. 2. This item will not hold or store alcohol, beer, fruit juice, milk or any other items that may spoil, cause damage to the plastics or otherwise compromise the integrity of it, it will also not hold or store hot teas, or beverages that are hot, or any liquid that is over 110 F-120 F or below temperatures of 50 F. 3. This item will not store water at sub freezing temperatures, its range is 50 F to 85 F or there about. 4. The jug is very durable, sturdy and will carry and hold 5 gallons of water for a very long time if proper use of a preserving agent is used. Drops sold in many retail chains that state they contain Tetraglycine Hydroperiodide are good for treating water only for bacteria not for storage, only tablets or drops that contain Sodium Hypochlorite should be used for water storage, or some other agent similar to Sodium Hypochlorite. 5. Proper care should be utilized when filling the container, rinse first, then eject the water, then fill to within 3 inches of the top, add drops, cap carefully making sure threads are properly aligned, then shake repeatedly and the cap interior covered in water while shaking, secure the cap lightly and allow small amount of water to escape to coat threads, then secure completely, port water through the main valve, then turn over and port water from the airflow valve. This will sanitize all ports as well. 5. Label with ink marker the date you store the water and the expire date, if opened prior to date retreat, and store again, making note of dates, 5 years usually for treated water. 6. Store water in a cool, dry, dark place, never outside. 7. Check the container every 6 months to assure it is secure and no leaks, making sure the water inside is intact and not able to leak from it through the ports, making sure the valve is in place and secure. 8. Making sure the container is clean and free of dirt, dust, animal waste and any other debris is always a good plan. Clean the exterior with a combination of 1 gallon warm water to 1 cap full of bleach. 9. Never, ever, rinse the interior with soap, bleach, or any other chemicals if you intend on using it for long term water storage.

    New to Coleman

    First I wanted a collapsible container but many of Colemans weak so I went with the hard plastic. Best thing I can say about this is that its not thin plastic, the spout is cheesy but very functional. The spout can be inverted when not in use to protect it during storage. When in use with the vent cap open, it allow s a steady controlled stream without wasting water all over the place. If you leave the vent close the stream is just enough to allow you to drink from it like a water fountain which is nice if you have a pet or lazy kids. Naturally once you fill it, its heavy. Guys don't leave this to your wife or kids to fill or carry. Its rugged enough that it stood up to 3 racoon attacks without be dragged away, dent, or punctured. Recommend you clean with baking soda to keep plastic smell out during storage

    Great size, easy to handle

    I couldn't believe we could still get these because we have had our first one so long so we grabbed another one. Coleman put a great non-slip surface on this so it's easy to handle when setting in place. Before we took it camping we put warm water and some lemon juice in it overnight to get the new plastic smell and taste out of it.
